FreeFrom Food Awards celebrate sector’s continued success

Share this:

The winners of the seventh annual FreeFrom Food Awards were revealed at an evening event at The Royal College of Physicians in Regents Park in April. Here NPN reveals this year’s winners.

Hosted and presented by Antony Worral Thompson, patron of the awards since their inception, the awards evening kicked off with a speech by Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, director of the FreeFrom Food Awards and chair of judges. “It is probably true to say that free-from is now the most successful sector of the food industry – but, for those of us who have been involved from the start, it is still somewhat gobsmacking that we have come so far, so fast,” she said. “For years my ambition has been to see free-from become part of the food ‘mainstream’ – and really now, I think it is.”

This year, 10% of all entrants’ fees went to the FreeFrom Food Awards chosen charity for 2015, Foodcycle.

Below are the winners from each category. For all the winners and runners-up plus more about the awards, visit the FreeFrom Awards site here.
